Prerequisites

Mathematis, Mechanics (statics)

Intended learning outcomes

One main task in Solid Mechanics is to investigate the interaction between forces (the loading) and deformations in structures made of different materials. In the course, the dimensioning of constructions or parts of them will be studied so that the functioning of the structure is achieved with a sufficient safety. The course will give a fundamental understanding of problems arising in engineering and present simple methods for approximate calculations of stresses in the materials and deformations of the structures.

Course content

Definitions and fundamental concepts. Elementary elasticity theory. Bars loaded in tension and compression and analysis of trusses. Torsion. Bending of beams: moment and shear force diagrams, area moments, normal and shear stresses, deformations, elementary cases. Stability: Euler buckling. Stress analysis at multi-axial stress states and yield criteria. Elementary fracture theory.

Teaching and working methods

The course is given during one quarter (half a semester). Lectures and lessons are given and the students perform laboratory work.

Regulations (apply to LiU in its entirety)

The university is a government agency whose operations are regulated by legislation and ordinances, which include the Higher Education Act and the Higher Education Ordinance. In addition to legislation and ordinances, operations are subject to several policy documents. The Linköping University rule book collects currently valid decisions of a regulatory nature taken by the university board, the vice-chancellor and faculty/department boards.

LiU’s rule book for education at first-cycle and second-cycle levels is available at http://styrdokument.liu.se/Regelsamling/Innehall/Utbildning_pa_grund-_och_avancerad_niva.
